    Even I am subject to blind indifference. I was asked to replace a sign and I said no problem, but I said I would have to make a few changes for the better.

    I submitted my rework and was told no good. Make it exactly like the original. I said no and suggested they find the original maker. Just makes you wonder what people perceive some times.

    yours looks better, of course. people have strange reasons that aren't always clear as to the why's behind something like this. who knows what their reasons were. too bad granny Buttercup will be spending eternity under a crappy looking plaque.

    28 years old is a little young for a granny. I'm thinking sorority house mom, with the Gamma Upsilon.

    Shame too about the sign, like the new design better than just blocked out lettering.

    It also might be that there are other plaques that match up to the crappy one. Too bad you weren't the original signmaker...

    ooops, I didn't look at the date and thought gamma was slang for ganny, my bad, but not as bad as that plaque looks.

    yours is much better...hands down, but i would respect their wishes and keep it original. Changing something now might hurt.

    Yes of course yours is better, but like Stacy said maybe they had to match their other awful plaques.
    Love....Jill

    I dunno... I think he did the right thing. They get consistency by going to their original guy, and you maintain your image by setting a quality standard.

    At the end of the day, you're only as good as what you put out the door.

    You spent time designing it how you wanted it and then told them to go use someone else. Did you get paid for that? If not, it's you that lost on the deal, not them.
